scrapfreak had their first TGIF crop of 2010 last night - i got to play along a little, since ben was at the cabin and sam was at her nana's! monica posted this challenge:
Your challenge is to scraplift a layout that you can't see. I'm going to give you the instructions which are based on the mystery layout but are still completely up to your own interpretation. I'll reveal the mystery layout on Sunday. It will be fun to see what you create!Here we go...
Use a shaped paper for your background and distress the edges.
Choose one photo to use on your layout.
Use a patterned or solid paper as a matte for your photo.
Place both the photo matte and photo in the mid to lower right hand side of the page.
Place two strips of paper at the bottom of your photo.
Place title on the left bottom of the photo and paper strips.
Embellish the bottom right hand side of your photo with a cluster of journaling shapes, buttons, and brads.
Place a small strip of paper in the upper left hand corner of your background shape.
Embellish with a few buttons. And ta-da...you're done!
this is what i came up with...
